    I'd like to reflect on ways to help myself be calm, in the present, and less anxious.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our planet and other people?

    Meat is more available in a richer country, because it is cheaper and easier to access.  Eating more meat heavily contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, and isn't fair to other people who want to live a healthy life on Earth.

    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?

    A major thing we can do is use large reusable water bottles like hydroflasks or thermoflasks. We could encourage the unnecessary use of them through educating those who have an easier access to refill their bottles rather that create waste. This way they have an idea of the waste they are creating. Having this image where you are involved in climate change and pollution is a great way to encourage people to permanently make sustainable choices and habits.

    Water Say No to Plastic Straws
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    I would use plastic cups or coffee cups alot but I have made it a habit to have a reusable cup on hand. This is useful for refilling water or having a coffee shop employee fill my cup rather than fill a plastic cup.

    What is the main water source in your region? If you don't know, how could you find out?

    I have no idea what the main water source is in our region. I assume its run off water from the hills? I could probably find this out by doing a google search and reading from certified websites.

    This is going to be a hard challenge for me because I really enjoy eating meat, but I'm excited to attempt to going at least one meal a day without meat!

    The Eco Challenge is going well! I have really enjoyed changing the challenges each week to try out new things and see what works best for me. The challenges have made me much more aware of how I live and how I can be much more sustainable!

    I am not sure what my main water source is in my region but I could try to do some research and find out.

    I'd say that I used to use plastic bags, straws, and coffee cups pretty frequently.  I've switched over to reusing my plastic bags instead of buying new ones when I go grocery shopping and remembering my reusable totes when I get groceries too.  I rely on my Hydro Flasks more and my reusable coffee cup more now too, which is really good!

    Going great so far! I had started growing mint but was unsuccessful. Since then I have started a plant table for my roomates and I on our patio.
